Integrate Opsgenie with XL Release

XL Release logo

What does Opsgenie offer XL Release users?

Opsgenie’s XL Release integration triggers Opsgenie notifications as part of your release process. Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for these notifications and determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • Integration is enabled and disabled through a plugin in XL Release.

  • When an alert is triggered from a release in XL Release, an alert is created in Opsgenie.

  • When the alert is closed in XL Release, the corresponding alert is closed in Opsgenie.

  • When the alert is snoozed in XL Release, the corresponding alert is snoozed in Opsgenie.

Add XL Release integration in Opsgenie
